Lilian, management controller at itiwit

An interview with Lilian, a management controller at Itiwit for the stand-up paddleboard and canoe-kayak family


Who are you?

"I am from Toulouse and have been "immersed" in Sports Co and many other sports since my earliest childhood: Combat, Racket, Trekking, Running sports, etc. I have been enjoying paddle sports since 2019. I am always up for cardio-adrenaline combo sports outings with other enthusiasts!
I have been working for Decathlon for 17 years, which I found out about when I worked as a cashier during my studies. I have 8 years of in-store experience, from Department Manager to Director, and 9 years in Signed Sports in Marketing and Finance: 7 years at Kipsta in Tourcoing and 2 years at Itiwit in Hendaye."

What do you do at itiwit?

"Financial Controller: I ensure the economic health of the company. I highlight the right support. This requires sound knowledge of Signed Sports trade in order to understand the needs, risks and opportunities and decide, predict and anticipate as accurately as possible."

What do you like about stand-up paddleboarding or kayaking?

"The water "in motion"!
Whether it’s riding the waves on a Surfing Stand-up Paddle Board or paddling down a river on a PackRaft, it is always a pleasure to take in this dynamic aspect! "
